In order to support our modern society in an ever- growing global population, energy supplies must converge to meet that growing demand.

When new technology enters the oil and gas scene, talk of layoffs can creep into water-cooler conversations. Will better software and computers replace people, or will they push the industry forward, creating the need for additional staff? These questions are especially pertinent for geophysicists today, as artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies are processing and interpreting seismic data at record speeds, often delivering results that rival, if not surpass, that of humans. With some software companies calling their platforms a “seismic revolution” by offering real-time data interpretation, geophysicists might question how they will fit into this new, seemingly supersonic world.

Pity the Permian Basin. Investors complain about disappointing returns from Permian production. Stockholders worry about the financial outlook for operators in the play. Lenders have started to cast a skeptical eye at the basin’s profit potential. So it’s surprising to find that a data-derived solution for addressing the Permian Basin’s current challenges might be readily available. And it’s somewhat startling to hear that, someday, unconventional resource plays in the United States could fly higher than ever.

Producers are feeling the pinch: they’ve got to drill ever more wells to stay ahead of their production declines. Increased production is weighing on crude oil prices – you get the benefit of this supply in resilient markets, but it is shrinking margins and available cashflow to fund this drilling. And at the same time, the financial community is pulling back, restricting access to capital. The industry is reshaping itself yet again in response to new market realities, looking for new ideas and better approaches and operating models.

Most contributions to the exploration community that get attention in articles and conventions concern the essential technical issues: petroleum geology, prospect/play risk analysis and volume expectation, economics, etc. However, once the prospect has been evaluated and the project is validated

As the global energy sector gains momentum and companies enter licensing rounds, the need for quick access to data holds fundamental importance. Increasingly, operators large and small are turning to multiclient companies who have the information and images that help them make decisions about entering a new area.

“Undoubtedly, yes, the world must accelerate its transition to renewable energy. Cost is no longer a major barrier for renewables.” That’s Sir Mark Moody-Stuart, chairman of the United Nations Global Compact Foundation, an organization dedicated to finding what it calls “lasting solutions” to the world’s pressing global needs, including, for our purposes here, energy.

While many see the energy transition as the switch from carbon-based to non- carbon-based fuels, Scott Tinker sees a broader definition. Tinker, past AAPG president, director of the Bureau of Economic Geology and Texas state geologist, suggested the goal of a successful transition is lifting some 2.5 billion people out of poverty by addressing energy poverty, as well as by minimizing environmental impacts.

Lower cost and lower carbon. That’s the energy future for which geoscientists need to start preparing now, according to Neal Anderson, president and CEO of Wood Mackenzie in Edinburgh, one of the world’s leading energy research and consulting firms.

Join us for the Structural Styles of the Middle East workshop. December 9-11, 2019, Muscat, Oman

The workshop aims to provide a state of the art review of the contrasted structural styles of the Middle East. The technical sessions will evaluate the influence of the multiple regional tectonic phases and of other major controlling parameters on the occurrence of major structural styles. A clear focus should be brought to the recent progresses made in the domains covered by the technical sessions as well as to their implications on economic prospectivity concerning hydrocarbon resources.
